Credit Score Matters
If you want a better rate, your credit score does matter. The Higher the Score, the better the rate and the lower your payment. What can your score do for you:
- 579 and lower – If you are approved for a mortgage with this low of a score you will have a credit score as much as 2% higher than the current lowest rate.
- 580-619 – You can expect an interest rate as much as 1% higher than the lowest rates available.
- 620-679 – With a credit score in this range your interest rate will be slightly affected. Rates could be .5% higher than someone with great credit will receive.
- 680-739 – This is the range most homebuyers are at, your rate will not be affected much at all in this range.
- 740 and higher – You will be offered the best rates mortgage companies have to offer.
- 640 and above-You can qualify for down payment assistance of 3%, 5%, and up to 20% of the purchase price(ex. $159,000 purchase price=$31,800 in down payment assistance)!!
